Before talking about the RICS APC Preparation Day, let’s take you back to the very beginnings of APC Support Limited, the company behind this blog.
Once upon a time were 5 newly chartered surveyors in the North-West of England who had enrolled with the RICS APC Mentor scheme. APC candidates were seldom aware of the scheme or did not dare to contact the mentors for advice, so these 5 mentors decided that it was time to do something about it!
They met their local RICS Regional Training Advisor in Warrington and contacted the chair of the QS Professional Group in Manchester and shared their ambitions. They were thrilled to be received with unreserved enthusiasm and their first APC preparation evening was soon organised.
Their first event was certainly a little chaotic but be reassured that they got much better at it over time!
Sadly, after some exciting times, the RICS was re-structured and they had to part ways, eventually leading Sonia Desloges to found APC Support Limited in order to pursue their passionate work with APC candidates.
Can you imagine our director’s delight when the RICS contacted her to take part, alongside two other amazing trainers, to their APC Preparation Days? It was like being back to the beginnings, when every day brought a new elating discovery! But this time, she has years of experience under her belt, the event will be run smoothly by the RICS and she simply cannot wait to share with you all you need to know for a successful APC journey.
The RICS currently have two dates:
- Birmingham: Tues. 24th July 2018
- Manchester: Wed. 25th July 2018
The RICS offer an early bird rate at £110 + VAT, which is ridiculously cheap for the amount of knowledge that you will gain. Just check out the agenda:
- The process – Interpretation of the Candidate’s Guide
- Workshop 1: “Getting to know you” workshop
- Ethics and Standards
- The APC Case Study
- The APC Presentation
- The Interview – Assessors’ Expectations
- Live Mock Interview and Q&A
- Workshop 2: “Competencies” workshop
- Hear from a recently passed candidate
- Lifelong Learning
But hurry up because the early bird will expire on Friday 8th June!
If you miss it, the full rate of £155 + VAT is still amazing value.
